Passionate fans are campaigning online for Johnny Depp to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, claiming Amber Heard “ruined his career”.
As Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s libel lawsuit continues to divide the internet into two passionate sectors, Depp fans have stepped up their efforts to bring the actor back into Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Depp, 58, was dropped from the popular film series as Captain Jack Sparrow in 2018, which the actor says was due to a trial Amber Heard written for the Washington Postidentify as a survivor of domestic violence.
Although Depp was not named in the article, Heard is being sued by Edward Scissorhands actor for 50 million US dollars (70 million Australian dollars) for implying he was abusive throughout their marriage. He pretends the test cost him lucrative film roles, including a sixth installment of Pirates. Heard is countersuited for $100 million.
Depp also alleges that he was physically and verbally assaulted by Heard.
As the televised trial continues to air shocking details of their relationship, including Depp’s alcohol and drug use, the couple’s explosive arguments and multiple accounts of alleged abuse, a Change.org to bring Depp back to the family franchise is receiving renewed attention.
Depp’s petition organizer, Kimberly Giles, writes that “Amber Heard ruined Johnny Depp’s life and career”.
“Johnny Depp deserves to return to life as it was before Amber Heard arrived, because no actor or actor could ever say that this man is not an amazing actor,” the petition reads. “If you were falsely accused of something you didn’t do, then there’s evidence you didn’t do it and you were still treated like a bad person, wouldn’t you Let justice be done ?”
Giles continued: “Johnny Depp deserves to continue his role [sic] like Sparrow. I believe removing it was a mistake on your part but pretty stupid if you ask me… Please change your mind and don’t release this movie without Johnny Depp. Giles’ updates and comments on the page go back two years.
Depp’s talent manager Jack Whigham said earlier this month that Depp lost $22.5 million due to his deleted role in the sixth. Pirate film. Whigham said Heard’s 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post, had a “catastrophic” effect on the actor’s career. However, during cross-examination, the timing of Depp’s dismissal and Heard’s editorial were questioned.
While Depp is adamant about his relationship with the pirate franchise ended due to Heard’s Post article, 2018 The Hollywood Reporter published an investigation into a series of problems that Depp allegedly had on the set of the fifth pirate film.
Citing sources close to the production, The Hollywood Reporter One article said Depp displayed “troublesome behavior” due to “excessive drinking” and frequent lateness.
A source told the publication that Depp was late so often that a member of the production staff was tasked with watching the house Depp rented in Coomera, Australia, while filming the movie, in order to keep to the schedule. production when he left home.
In 2020, Depp was also “asked to step down” from his role in the fantastic beasts franchise after losing a defamation case against The sun. The judge denied that the newspaper’s reference to Depp as a “wife beater” was defamatory, finding the statement to be “essentially true”.

Depp’s legal team retaliated in a scathing statement, accusing Heard of delivering “the performance of a lifetime”.
The libel suit is now halted for a week. Heard will continue his testimony when he resumes.
